How to mount .bin and .cue in Linux

This Howto is to show that how we can mount “.bin” and “.cue” files on Linux without burning them on CD.
First we need fuseiso
On Suse Linux use yast to download fuseiso
Once downloaded use the following commands as a non root user:

Create Directory:
Create a directory in home directory of user , i called it mountbin
salman@GENX:~>mkdir mountbin <–
Now use the following command to mount “file.bin” file on mountbin directory

fuseiso -p <path to file.bin>  /home/mountbin

You will see the directory mountbin mounted on nautilus

When you need to unmount use:

fusermount -u <path to mount>
